Video poems 1a and 2
In a world that values bite-size arts and entertainment, “short” is very good. Add “media” to that and you have a reasonable formula for success in the ongoing struggle to gain a timeslice of a busy audience’s attention. It follows, then, that when I started seeing video poems scattered around the web, I knew it would be an art form I’d simply have to try.
The term video poem can mean different things to different people. To see what it means to me, please check out two of my first attempts to create a haiku moment at the shiny-bright intersection of “short” and “media”. ;- )
